I got 20 7" records from a charity shop last week for 2 with the intention of making some really cool notebooks. Here is the first of many, I can't wait til I get to make the one which will have a purple centre (it's my favourite record), I didn't want it to be my trial run one in case something went wrong & I wrecked it...

Forgive all my jewellery making stuff in the back of the picture, I'm clearly too messy for my own good Tongue.

Cute!  How did you make the holes for the binding?

I'm curious too as to how you did the holes...I saw this in CD form at Clair's I think and it was one of those "I could totally make that" moments

That is cool!! How on earth did you make the rectangular holes?? And how easy was it to put the wire spiral thingy through?

VERY cool!
I have also made these using the Coptic stitch and cutting 12" vinyl records in half! So, if you don't have access to the wire binding supplies give it a try!

Punching the holes is really not that difficult....I used an old awl from my bookbinding supplies...it just takes a little time and patience (so you don't crack the vinyl record)...also heating the tip of the awl makes it easier...but be careful!

Thanks for sharing this with us....I hope you will also share how you punched the holes...I am always looking for more efficient ways!

That is so funny because when I saw this notebook I instantly started thinking of how to make one using the coptic stitch!  How did you cut the record?

I love yours!  I am also curious about how you cut the holes.  You are going to get a lot of compliments whenever you pull it out in public.  I can't wait to see your other ones!

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately I can't claim that I've used an interesting technique to cut the holes... I have an amazing binding machine which will cut through almost anything...even records & CD's! The CD books will be coming next Tongue. I used a circle cutter to cut the paper which made everything a lot faster (and I actually got accurate circles instead of the wobbly mess I'd have got if I'd done it myself).

I was also thinking about making one with a record cut in half, but that was before I had my machine... to be honest I never really thought of a way that I could cut the record nicely without breaking it...
